In love we find out
who we want to be.
In war we find
out who we are.

One day I was sitting on my couch and talking about my need to exercise. My oldest son Jake said, “Put on your shoes.” I was surprised and asked him, “Why?” He said, “Stop talking about it. Let’s do it.”
I put on my shoes and we headed out the front door. I asked Jake, “Where are we going?” He said, “For a run.”
We started to run and I did really great... at first. We ran from our house to a big hill located about two miles away. I was excited when I made it to the hill without stopping.

I think it’s a great venue to have your songs heard,” Allen said.

No matter what age you happen to be right now, like the lyrics say in a song by the Swedish electro-pop recording artist Seinabo Sey, “You ain’t getting any younger, are ya?” Fact is, the older I get the more obvious – and frankly – frustrating that is. I was recently working on cleaning up along a fence and weeding some flower beds and simply hit the wall, so I quit for the day. But I didn’t let that keep me from finishing the job the next day. Why, you might ask, did I tackle that task myself? Well, at least in part, I did it to keep my mind sharp – and that’s a real concern for me.

A microcurrent facial is often referred to as a “natural” facelift. This safe and painless facial helps erase fine lines and wrinkles, while firming your skin and defining your features. It improves muscle tone, reduces puffiness, increases cellular activity, and tightens pores. The overall result is healthier and younger looking skin. There is no downtime, and you can immediately go about your day.
